Ahly Seek Revenge Against Pirates

Al Ahly midfielder Abdallah El-Said says his team will be looking for revenge when they take on Orlando Pirates in their final round of CAF Champions League Group A fixtures this Sunday, at the Orlando Stadium.

Pirates beat the Ahly 3-0 when the two teams last met in Egypt last month, with Thandani Ntshumayelo, Andile Jali and Sifiso Myeni finding the back of the net.

"We will play to win against Orlando Pirates, as we are eager to revenge our previous loss in Gouna," Abdullah El-Said told Ahram Online.

Meanwhile Ahly left-winger Ahmed Shedid says Ahly wanted to qualify as Group A winners, so they need to beat Pirates in order to do so.

"We will play a big game against Orlando Pirates as we need to stay on top of the group," said Shedid.

Ahly, who have already qualified for the Champions League semi-finals following their 4-2 win over Zamalek, currently lead Group A with 10 points, three points ahead of Pirates and Congo's AC Leopards, while Zamalek lie at the bottom with four points.
